Amiens-PSG: for Paris, it's time to spend the second

"There is a before and after Liverpool." This phrase, the PSG players have often used to emphasize the new state of mind inherited the success against the Reds (2-1), November 28 in the Champions League. But if there is "one after Liverpool", it is far from being brilliant in terms of accounting. Four wins, one loss and two draws, seven goals conceded, Paris has had more prosperous times this season. Not to mention the difficulties in the game, except maybe against the Red Star Belgrade (4-1) if we exclude the first twenty minutes of the second period.

"We did not want to face Guingamp but I understand the players. We can not do 60 matches with the same emotional state, the same concentration … It's not easy to be always 100% motivated, "said Thomas Tuchel on Friday to try to explain the second defeat of the season Wednesday against the En Avant, in the quarter-finals of the Coupe de la Ligue (1-2). Paris is not an isolated case in Europe. Barça was also trapped on Thursday in Levante (1-2), in the first leg of the King's Cup. And last Monday, Liverpool was eliminated from the FA Cup by Wolverhampton (2-1) from the start. It is logical, and rather healthy, that the big cars know some failures during the same exercise.

Some executives speak the language

But the Parisian difficulties tend to last. The meager solutions in the midfield are a beginning of explanation, especially since the ban of Adrien Rabiot. It is also difficult to ignore the blows of slack in recent weeks, executive players like Cavani, Mbappé, Di Maria, even Meunier. Only Thiago Silva and especially Neymar, who will be absent in the Somme, continue to align regular and convincing benefits.

A month away from the trip to Manchester United for the eighth-final first leg of the Champions League, there is no (yet) danger in the house. But the Parisian squad (young shoots included) would be well inspired to level with the two Brazilians. And it starts this Saturday (17 hours) in Amiens.
